The browser wars continue, and while Google’s Chrome web browser has grown by leaps and bounds in terms of its market share with Microsoft’s lumbering Internet Explorer being cut down to size as people realize that there is more to life than just IE, here we are with another old name in the game – Mozilla’s Firefox which is now in the 14th iteration. Firefox 14 has just been launched, where one of the major features would be the ability to encrypt your Google searches by default, now how about that? Not only that, Mozilla has also thrown improved mouse recognition in games into the mix. Firefox 14 will be able to do so thanks to support for the Pointer Lock API.
In addition, Mozilla will now enable Firefox to experience fullscreen mode in Mac OS X 10.7, so Mac users should have a smile on their collective faces if Firefox is your browser of choice. Search encryption was introduced due to many users of Firefox who tend to work on wireless connections, leaving yet another door open for anyone with malicious intent to piggy back on the connection and find out just what you are looking for. Have you given Firefox 14 a download yet?
